ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 BIOS update_how_to

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I just purchased my new rig.

I see that the BIOS has an update available.

I'm not sure how to do it and couldn't find it here or on googling--found like flashback or something and I'm not sure what it is or how to do it.

Can you please help me with this?

Thanks.

Yes, Asus call it's BIOS update utility "Flashback".

Just follow the instructions in your owner's manual (Section 2.2.1 USB BIOS Flashback)

Thanks! Got that.

I do have a doubt here, i read it on the net that the flash/pen drive should be formatted in FAT32 type?

Is that true?

No.
A flash drive only has to be formatted FAT32 if you want to boot from it.

The m5a99fx doesnt have onboard video. If you are still unsure about the bios update, you can use the asus suite bios tool to flash it from OS
